The new version of Candyman has its premiere today. On this occasion, new clips appeared yesterday, which slightly refer to the original.
The original Candyman from 1992 was based on the short story The Forbidden by Clive Barker. Chicago student Helen Lyle is writing an MA thesis on contemporary folklore. One day he learns the story of Candyman, a grappling ghost who haunts an apartment block in a dangerous neighborhood. To summon him, you must say his name five times. Soon the demon comes to life and commits a series of horrific crimes.
